El condado de Castilla en 1030 unido a Navarra. Fruto de este matrimonio nacieron cinco hijos: 1) García Sánchez III de Pamplona «el de Nájera», rey de Pamplona (c. 1012 - 1054), casado con Etienette de Barcelona y con Estefanía. 2) Gonzalo Sánchez (c. 1014 - 1045), conde de Sobrarbe y Ribagorza. 3) Fernando Sánchez «el Grande» (c. 1016 – 1065), conde de Castilla (1029–1065) y rey de León (1037–1065), casado con Sancha de León, hermana de Bermudo III. 4) Bernardo Sánchez de Navarra. 5) Jimena Sánchez (1018-1063), que contrajo matrimonio con el rey Bermudo III de León. ---------- Mayor of Castile From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Mayor of Castile (d. 1032) was queen of Navarre. She was originally called Muniadona (or Muñadona) and is variously called Munia (or Muña) Mayor (or just Munia or Muña). In Spanish, she is called Muniadona de Castilla. It is said that her husband Sancho III of Navarre (Sancho the Great) renamed her from her contemporary name Muniadona to Mayor, for she was the eldest in her family, yet since she had an aunt of the same name, the story is clearly apocryphal. She was the daughter of Count Sancho I of Castile. Her marriage to Sancho made her Queen consort of Navarre. In 1029, the Count García Sánchez of Castile, Mayor's brother, was assassinated by the Vela family, Castilian exiles in León. Mayor's husband, Sancho the Great, claimed his role as feudal overlord to pass the county to their second son, Ferdinand. Likewise this brought a nominal legitimate claim to the counties of Ribagorza and Sobrarbe to her husband, who has already taken control of them militarily. Mayor was the mother of four sons and perhaps two daughters: King García Sánchez III of Navarre Ferdinand the Great, king of León and Castile Gonzalo of Sobrarbe and Ribagorza Bernardo Jimena, wife of Bermudo III of León Mayor, wife of Pons of Toulouse
